53' 1979 Hatteras 53

53 ft 53 $159,995.00 Boat History Report

Known as the Classic Sportfish, envied by all others of its day, this beautifully maintained 53-foot Hatteras is still in demand and defies her age. Her trademark long foredeck and sweeping sheer into an oversized cockpit make her the ideal big cockpit sportfish. Although she looks so clean, it seems like she has never seen a fish aboard, she’s fully equipped and ready for bluewater anglers. Powered by Twin 8V92TI Detroit Diesels with only 750 hours, she has a 14.5HP Bow Thruster, all updated electronics, Simrad Auto Pilot integrated with Raymarine Radar, Depth, (2) VHFs, Raymarine Touch GPS Plotters, and more. The Bridge has a 3-sided Isinglass enclosure, and a nice feature is the Retractable Cockpit Shade, plus a hydraulic Marquipt 1000 Davit on the bow raises and lowers the Dinghy. She had a recent full Bottom Job with Propspeed on the props and comes complete with Outriggers, Rocket Launchers, and Tackle Station. She has all new air conditioning systems, all new thru-hull fittings, valves, and hoses, spare propellers, new cutlass bearings, two staterooms with a sleeper sofa in the salon, two heads with showers, and a Phasor generator with 300 hours. The galley has a brand-new full-size refrigerator, Corian countertops, and a stainless microwave. She has a nicely furnished spacious salon with panoramic windows and plenty of creature comforts for all your days on the water fishing, cruising, or living aboard.
